Smallfoot: The Movie

Boasting an impressive cast of members such as Channing Tatum, Zendaya, LeBron James, and James Cordon, Warner’s Animation Group presents SmallFoot, a delightful story about a yeti on a quest to prove that humans, or as they are referred to throughout the movie, SmallFoot, are real.

After seeing a Smallfoot, Migos, the protagonist, voiced by Channing Tatum, goes to his village to tell everyone about his discovery. He is banished when no one believed him. Migos joins forces with Meechee, voiced by Zendaya, and a band of rebels called the S.E.S. or Smallfoots Exist Suckers, to prove that they exist.

The movie runs at a length of 1 hour and 49 minutes, which was long enough to tell the story but short enough to where interest was not lost. Despite the movie being made for kids, teenagers should see it too.

The soundtrack, featuring songs performed by Channing Tatum, Zendaya, Common, Niall Horan, and CYN, was catchy and meaningful, fitting the animation well. Tristin’s personal favorite was Wonderful Life, sung by Zendaya, though Kayla preferred Finally Free, sung by Niall Horan.

The movie itself features themes of friendship, family, and courage, in addition to some darker aspects such as war. Common raps about the strained relationship between yeti and man in a five-minute song that comically describes the dispute.  

As the movie progressed, the ending became a predictable typical happily ever after for the protagonist and all the characters, though there was an unexpected plot twist that left the watchers sitting on the edge of their chairs.

The animation was well constructed and should be seen by kids and adults alike. We hope everyone else who goes to see the movie has an equally memorable viewing experience. For movie tickets and showtimes, visit
